James Hoggarth

There's a meeting tonight at a pub in Hull for people concerned about one of the proposed sites to build a new medical building. It could be built on a local children's play park. 

Springhead Medical Centre wants to expand to meet demand from a growing patient list.

Five sites have been proposed but one of them is a children's playground.

The reason we need a new building is because of the patient size, it's outgrown its current building."

How will leaving the EU concern farmers in East Yorkshire?

Natalie Glanvill

Reporter BBC Radio Humberside

Some food and drink producers in East Yorkshire are concerned the vote to leave the EU could have a negative effect on trade deals and supply chains. 

Many of them are at the Great Yorkshire Show in Harrogate today, where later in the week there'll be a special event discussing what Brexit means for agriculture. 

But Kate Morgan who is a pig farmer from Driffield says coming out of the EU has been a positive thing for them:

Pork from the EU is more expensive now because the pound is weaker and so supermarkets are looking to buy British pork which is great for us."

Sport: Bruce says he wants Hernandez to stay at Hull City

BBC Humberside Sport

Steve Bruce is hoping to keep last season's top scorer Abel Hernandez (pictured) at Hull City, despite speculation about him returning to Italy. 

The Uruguayan scored 22 goals in all competitions last season, after moving from Palermo in 2014. 

He's being linked with Fiorentina and Sampdoria, but Bruce says that's news to him.

I've not had any offer... and we would turn it down unless it got to stupid money and then again there's probably only two or three clubs in Italy who could pay stupid money, so somehow I don't believe it."

Gill Sennett

The decision to close the Humberstone Fitties chalet park for another two months each year will be discussed later by people who live there and local councillors.

Last month North East Lincolnshire Council decided to double the "no access'" period for the park to help mitigate the risk of flooding.

Scheme for South Cave housing back on agenda

James Piekos

Reporter, BBC Hull and East Yorkshire

I've been to South Cave this morning where it seems proposals for up to 82 new homes could be back on the agenda again.

Last year the application by Gladman Developments was turned down by East Riding Council because of issues with flooding and the rural landscape. 

Now the company have appealed against that decision and a public inquiry will take place.

We do not believe that the council can demonstrate a robust five year supply of housing as required by government policy."

Campaigners say its an inappropriate place to develop and there have been over 800 letters of objection.
